Global Safe Drinking Water Advocacy Day - March 23, Washington DC

Advocacy on Capitol Hill on behalf of the Senator Paul Simon Water for the World Act (and related appropriations) continues apace.  The latest opportunity to lend your voice is below:

Please join us for the World Water Day Advocacy Day in Washington, DC on March 23rd from 9:00-5:00 p.m. On this advocacy day, we are convening supporters from across the country to call on Congress to increase support for sustainable water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs and child health programs. We are conducting a morning training session in which we will be providing all the information and tools that participants will need to be effective advocates in their meetings with Congress. In the afternoon, advocacy day participants will be meeting with congressional offices to ask for support for WASH and child health issues. This advocacy day is a collaboration of several organizations that are working together to mark World Water Day in the US – including CARE, PSI, Global Water Challenge, the US Coalition for Child Survival, Water Advocates, and WaterAid.

We hope that you or others from your organization will participate in this exciting opportunity. We also encourage you to disseminate the attached flyer to your supporters to ask them to participate. Please sign up to participate in World Water Day Advocacy Day at (under the sign up section of the landing page).

Feel free to send me a note if you need more details.
